Learn How to Use Gemstone Mousse

Hi everyone! It’s Melissa from The Top Drawer RVA! As a Brand Ambassador, my job is to try new products and create beautiful things while showing you all the in’s and out’s! Let’s learn all about the product by Dixie Belle, Gemstone Mousse!


Gemstone Mousse is a wonderful pigment that is going to accent your piece. It’s a water based formula. No smell and no mineral spirits. Bright pigment and eco friendly. You can apply this with your fingers or a brush. Let’s go over the possibilities. Since this is a water based mousse it can separate in the 1 ounce jar. Stir and/or mix well before use. Think this is a small size? Well it might be small, but it is powerful! A little goes a very long way! Shake or stir this product well before use. No need to topcoat this product. If you choose to topcoat, please remember this is a water based product. One quick swipe of a clear coat is all you need. If you over work it – it might re-activate the mousse.

Let’s put this product on a mirror and test it out. I have a vintage wood mirror. I plan to paint it and apply the Gemstone Mousse.

Materials List:

How To:

Step 1:

First, I cleaned the mirror frame with White Lightning. This is a necessary step to get your item clean and ready for paint. After cleaning and rinsing I chose a neutral color. Let’s paint with Vintage Duck Egg.

Step 2:

I painted on two full coats of Vintage Duck Egg using a flat medium brush. After this dried, I used sandpaper to distress the edges a bit.

Step 3:

Let’s age this mirror with some Dixie Dirt. Dixie Dirt is a pigmented product that can be applied over a painted surface. It allows you to add depth and dimension to the paint and details. I use Easy Peasy Spray wax first. Apply to the area you want the “Dirt” to stick to then apply some Dirt in Earth with a Belle Brush. Using a natural fiber brush allows me to fade the dirt pigment back.

Step 4:

Now it’s time to try the MOUSSE! Yes! The Mousse is loose…..

Shake the container well. When you apply the mousse you will see how it covers well. I used a small brush to apply to any raised detail. It’s rich in color and pigment. One coat is all you need.
